I’ve really fallen head over heels in love with this beautifully positioned country cottage with its large garden.  The house has been cleverly extended and is filled with light – pretty unusual for a victorian farm cottage.  There are lots of footpaths on the doorstep including one linking across the fields to Whitwell and the fabulous White Horse Inn!

Full description

This handsome semi detached Victorian house is set in an idyllic rural position with superb rural views all around. Warmed by LPG heating and with UPVC double glazing, the house has been sympathetically extended and improved in the past to now provide a very spacious, light and appealing family home. The open plan accommodation has comfortable sitting and dining rooms (both with pretty multi fuel stoves) which are joined by the cleverly created side extension. A well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room sits at the rear creating a real heart to the home. The main family bathroom is also set on this floor and is a generous size with both a slipper bath and large walk-in shower. On the first floor are three double bedrooms with stunning rural views and a fourth smaller bedroom/study with a velux window. A smart shower room provides a useful second facility. The cottage is set in a beautiful rural location yet still accessible to both Niton and Whitwell making it an ideal family home. The very large mainly lawned gardens are interspersed with trees and have useful storage including a former wash house. There is parking to both the front and side - where a double garage is housed. BEAUTIFUL SETTING, FABULOUS COTTAGE!
